Ok, Pinkie. You have me convinced. You know everyone.

To tell you the truth, this page was originally going to be about a colt attempting to impress a filly by riding a scooter over a ramp, performing a very dangerous stunt over a great distance; being the first to do so. Then, the Fluffle Puff ball would beat him to it. However, it just wasn't funny. Not to mention the fact that I couldn't find any decent ramps or scooters without Scootaloo attached to them. So, have some Lyra & Bon Bon, instead.

I like how in the latest episode, Trixie wasn't really evil. She's just a misguided braggy-pants. Even when she repented, she was still very prideful. I like it because it's relatable.

@Lugbzurg: I'm pretty sure that "alicorn" is actually the term used to describe the material a unicorn's horn is made out of. Which is why I initially thought it was ridiculous to call the Princesses that. After a while, the term kind of grew on me, because really, the alternative "Pegacorn" is even stupider, not to mention it doesn't account for the fact that the Princesses are supposed to be a mixture of all three pony races (The wings of a pegasus, the horn of a unicorn, and the connection to the Earth that an earth pony has).

@Jarkes: "Pegacorn" isn't an alternative. It's just another bad name. They really don't have to call it anythingcorn. Just give it a unique name like the other species.

There were others who liked the name as what you would call a unicorn horn, myself included. But now the show seems to have stomped all of that out in favor of the more "popular" context, without any logic behind it.

That's the problem with this fan service. They've been applying things without really thinking about what they represent.

You know, I used to have a hex editor and I would edit the source code for things like ODDBALLZ.

More recently, about six years ago, one of my professors taught us how to edit maya 7 software using a kitchy item called notepad that is included in just about every version of windows.

Maybe you could edit the source code of doom with notepad or with a hex editor in order to replace backgrounds or modify sprites.

Then again that takes a tremendous amount of patience and dedication.

I mean, unless you know what you're looking for you could be sitting there for hours.

Granted, It might actually be just as hard to make your own game or program.

I'm not entirely sure I want the argument to return. I really want to talk about my nonsensical project that involves the discovery of a new universal symbol for nonsense.

I'm looking for inspiration. As such I'm willing to alter the parameters for the symbolism to include social phobia, not because I think it's nonsense, but because some people have have trouble imagining things they don't understand.

Therefore, by crazy making logic, the symbol that represents nonsense must have some logical direction that makes absolutely no sense.

Remember this is for a parody project of FIM.

@GabrielsThoughts: Impending Doom is what you may call something of a My Little Pony parody in a sense, with the tagline "No pony pun in the title, 'cause this is serious business!"

I've been drawing out a few things like enemies, including the "Clopper", which looks human, but it has hooves (and carries a gun), the "Pinkamena", which is covered in blood, carrying large twin blades, and the "Alicorn OC", which is self-explainitory.

There'd most likely be levels with certain names such as "Love and Tolerate" and "Past Sins", as Doom itself had levels with names like "Sign of Evil"... or "Hangar", in the less forbidden places. But this is what happens when scientist ponies try to open up a portal to the bronies, only to end up unleashing demonic representations of the fandom's dark side.

Making this kind of stuff is what the "ZDoom" editor is for. I just have to figure out how it works. Frankly, I can't get it to start up. There were various files available for it, so I guess I'm missing some. And there seems to be a specific place I need to keep the main file, but it isn't too clear for me on where that is.

Not that this is relavent to your situation. I remember there was once a company named apogee that made "Blake Stone" and "Duke Nukem" video games.

Apparently, the programmers didn't like Microsoft very much because they rigged a functionality conflict for anyone who didn't run the game through Basic DOS protocols of some kind... MSDOS was not compatible with the software and so we had to take the computer to Cid, the computer guy that worked at the video store.

When he couldn't figure it out we eventually wound up using a computer forensics guy, named Russell or Scott, to help us get the games up and running. He was the son of a local real estate guru that my dad knew or owed money too.

Anyway, the computer guy showed me the whole process three times.

We eventually installed Blake Stone on the computer. Unfortunately, I had trouble remembering the whole process. Buuuu~t, I had seen it enough times figure out the process it out after a few attempts/failures.

Fortunately, I was later able to install Duke Nukem without a hitch.

Sadly, this knowledge is absolutely irrelevant at this point, Windows 3.1 is probably not the platform you want ZDoom to be working on. I used to be a super user with windows 95 too. It wasn't hard to manage since the computer was running on half a gigabyte of memory.

Long story short I'm thinking ZDoom is at least Windows XP compliant. I don't know if that will help you but it is recommended, if all else fails, you seek advise from either a computer technician at Best Buy, or a Computer Forensics person that you can get ahold of through six degrees of separation.

@Jarkes: Actually, the "Alicorn OC" would be lots of colors, and be an eyesore to look at. 'Cause, she's a blatant Mary-Sue.

Bosses? Well, I was thinking Princess Molestia in Episode 3, with some monstrosity that resembles Luna for Episode 2. However, I haven't heard of some alternate for her like Molestia for Celestia. As for Episode 4 (at the very end of the game), I have the "Nolifer" (No life... r). Essentially a fat guy riding in a floating pod. Maybe with some pony parts. Actually I think all the "former human" enemies would have pony parts. The aforementioned "Clopper" would have hooves (at least for the feet). There may be a "Shipper" with a unicorn horn. And the "Pegasis"... well, that's pretty obvious. Considering I use all these names. The "Clopper" is a must; I know that for certain.

Mockeries of the Mane 6? Well, there's the Pinkamena I mentioned earlier. Taken straight out of Cupcakes, and then some. Fluttershys are kind of kind of "NSFW", Applejacks have large, bloody machine guns that have popped out of their flesh, Rarities might take a page from the .MOV series' book (since a lot of people insist she's selfish for some reason) and be made out of marshmallows, Rainbow Dashes would be lesbians, and the Twilight Sparkles would use teleporting, be it on themselves or to summon more monsters. I'm just going with the negative stereotypes I've seen people place on these characters and making enemies out of them. However, I'm not sure what to do with the Rainbow Dash and Rarity monsters just yet.

Is it going to offend some people? You bet!
But this is something that should be done.

@.:AuraX:.: That... is... brilliant.

Much like the Doom mod, Call of Dooty (and its sequel, Call of Dooty II: Green Ops), this Doom mod is designed to make a statement, as well as entertain. Of course it addresses the dark side of the MLP fandom, rather than modern military shooters.

I'm loving this! So, what kinds of potential baddies we got?

For the "former humans" (what some people call "Sargents" and "Zombiemen" from Doom), we've got...
Shipper
Clopper
Pegasis
Converter
I call these types of fans "Phonies", but I know others call them "Brownies".

Demonic ponyesque baddies include...
Twilight Sparkle gone crazy with warping spells
Rainbow Dash as a lesbian
Rarity as a greedy marshmallow
Applejack all trigger-happy with guns ejecting from her back
Flutershy gone humanoid with "curves"
Pinkie Pie taking a page straight from Cupcakes
Mary-Sue Alicorn OC
(Possibly something like "Ditzy Doo the Changeling")

But, those are just the baddies. There are multiples of all of them. (Wanna see a dozen blade-wielding Pinkamena Diane Pies running after you?) As for the three bosses, I'm thinking...

Episode 1: Just a concentrated section of tougher baddies
Episode 2: Some form of Luna (in socks?) tainted by the dark fandom
Episode 3: Princess Molestia
Episode 4: The Nolifer

Episode 1 is inside Princess Celestia's Department of Magic and Science.
Episode 2 is throughout Equestria.
Episode 3 is inside the hellish monstrosity homeland.
Episode 4 is in the human world.

Potential level/episode names include...
Love and Tolerate
Past Sins
My Little Dashie
Fallout Equestria
Trixie's Funhouse
Dat Plot
Shipping and Handling

Still trying to work out the weapons, but I'm thinking I may still follow the system set by Doom itself, as well as Quake (Doom's spiritual successor).

@.:AuraX:.: Oh, yes! I remember hearing about Lauren Faust at some sort of expo or other public event. She was taking questions, and one of them started getting mad at her that Rainbow Dash enforced the stereotype that all tomboys are lesbians. Faust responded that Dash's sexual preference had never even been mentioned in the show (though she's been seen with her arms around a couple stallions as well as dancing with Soarin'), and that this was a rather unfair generalization on both parties.

Come to think of it, adding in elements from what these kind of people see the show as may work out, as well!

@Lugbzurg:
Kathleen Richter of Ms. believed that Friendship Is Magic did little to change the nature of older animations for girls, which she considered "so sexist and racist and heteronormative." For example, she suggested that, through the character of Rainbow Dash, the show was promoting the stereotype that "all feminists are angry, tomboyish lesbians." She also considered that the only darker-colored ponies shown to date were in positions of servitude towards the "white pony overlord." Lauren Faust responded to these claims by stating that while Rainbow Dash was a tomboy, "nowhere in the show is her sexual orientation ever referenced" and "assuming [tomboys] are lesbians is extremely unfair to both straight and lesbian tomboys", and further stating that "Color has never, ever been depicted as a race indicator for the ponies." Amid Amidi, writing for the animation website Cartoon Brew, was more critical of the concept of the show, calling it a sign of "the end of the creator-driven era in TV animation". Amidi's essay expressed concern that assigning a talent like Faust to a toy-centric show was part of a trend towards a focus on profitable genres of animation, such as toy tie-ins, to deal with a fragmented viewing audience, and overall "an admission of defeat for the entire movement, a white flag-waving moment for the TV animation industry."
